Welcome to Adiyen Sri Ramanuja Dasan !

" Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha !"

THE OTHER TYPE OF KAINKARYAS FOR VAISHNAVAS

Out of his infinite mercy, Acharya Ramanauja has suggested 5 Kainkaryas to suit the competence and convineience of the Vaishanvas;

(1) study of Sri Bhashya, the commentary on Brahma Sutras
(2) for those, who find it difficult, study of the Naalaiyra Divya Prabhandam
(3) for those , who can not do that, services to Vaishnava divya desams and Abhimana sthalas thru provision of Food, Flowers or lighting of lamps
(4) For those, who can not afford that the mantra Japa of Dwayam, the sacred Mantram on Narayana and Sri Devi.
(5) For those, who feel they can not follow any one of the above four Kainkaryas, The company of Vaishnavas is recommended as a last resort.

Ramanuja's prescriptions cover the entire world of Literate scholars in Sanskrit, Telugu and Tamil as well as illiterate masses, who have embraced Vaishnavism. No one is thus left out.

Brahmins are one of the members of the four Varnas described by Krishna Bhagavan in Bhagavad Gita. The divisions in to four categories as Brahmins, Kshtriyas, Vaisyas and Sudras was based on the allocation of complimentary duties of the four Varnas. Brahmins were assigned the study of Vedas and protection of them. Vaisyas took care of Commerce, Kshatriyas ruling of the land and Sudras for other duties not covered bty the members of the first three Varnas. No one is superior to the other among the four Varnas in the eyes of the Lord. All are his children.

Vaishnavas are Vishnu dasas, who devote their entire life to the service of Bhagavan or Bhagavatas . The Vishnu Dasas , who happen to be Brahmins by Birth are identifiable as Iyengars. There are Tamil Nadu Iyengars and Mysore Iyengars known as Mandayam Iyengars. Iyengars some time concentrated in Agraharams and the Name of Iyengar Street In Kumbakonam came from that. Tattachars are famous residents of that street once.

Brahmins can be Iyengars, Iyers and Raos. Veda Adhyayanam and performance of Yagas and Yagnas and intrepretation of Sacred scriptures were their assigned duties. The late Paramacharya of Kabnchi has made a distinction between Brahmanas and Brahmana Bandhus. He has described the latter as the one born of Brahman parents, but not observant of the duties assigned by the Sastras and Vedas to Brahmins.
